Whilst studying for a higher education course I was able to par take in two Smart Qualifications, level 2 gym instructor and level 3 personal trainer, with Suzanna as my tutor. When doing these courses it was flexible and easy to work in with my other commitments with allowing me to set my own deadlines but as well as being strongly guided and instructor.

I found the courses really interesting and usefully as all the material is really detailed and I can now relate back and keep a good understanding when I have clients. Suzanna adapted around how I learn and gave me constant assistance when needed on any of the part I didn’t understand.”

 “I cannot recommend Smart Qualifications highly enough! I completed the Level 2 Fitness Instructor course in only 2 months by taking the distance learning option. It was great for me as I was able to learn at my own pace and in my own time. I loved the Level 2 course so much I decided to start the Level 3 Personal Training course as soon as I had finished the Level 2. Suzanna was an absolute star, always available whenever I had a question (frequently!!). She also met me at a time and place that suited me to do the assessment papers. This meant that I could carry on working full time while doing the courses. The courses are detailed enough that you feel confident to train people straight away but you don’t feel bombarded by too much info. I completed the Level 3 in 3 months and 2 weeks into Personal Training I already have 5 clients!!

Tracy – Peterborough

I have attended several courses from Smart Qualifications and each one of them has been a great experience which has enriched me personally and professionally. The organisation and delivery were always spot on but what made a big difference was the tutors: friendly, knowledgeable and always available to provide support with clear explanations and practical tips from first-hand experience. Highly recommended to anybody who is serious about a career in the fitness industry.


The online support from Suzanna and Nicola was continuous throughout the course, any completed worksheets were marked and feedback was quickly returned to myself, communication was constant and time scales for completion of worksheets, assessments was made clear to ensure I kept motivated to complete required evidence.  Nicola worked around my work commitments at HMP Hewell to ensure that all theory and practical assessments could be carried out, as and when required, which was much appreciated.  I thoroughly enjoyed the distance learning Level 3 Personal Trainer experience and would recommend Smart qualifications as a valid, high quality training provider for distance learning courses.
